Before January of 2017, the flagship motherboard series for Gigabyte was their G-1 Gaming series. But, at CES 2017, Intel released their Z270 chipset and we were introduced to the Aorus line up of motherboards and graphics cards. Before that, the Aorus name had been reserved for Gigabytes high-end laptops. Since the initial Aorus launch, Gigabyte has expanded their line up to include other core components. This includes everything from monitors and peripherals to SSDs and memory.
We’ve reviewed a wide range of Aorus products either here or on our sister site Modders-Inc. It goes without saying that Gigabyte has built one impressive line up with their Aorus brand. So, when they asked us to check out their newest Aorus RGB memory, we were excited to see how well it performed.
Gigabyte sent us a 16 GB kit of their AORUS RGB Memory running at 3600 MHz. I’m sure those who have seen this memory would agree that it looks great. But aesthetics aside, how does it perform? We ran the Aorus RGB memory through our suite of benchmarks to see how well it performs and also how well it overclocked. So, how did it do? Let’s find out.
